Hey, just thought about this. Myself and my other half will probably not be going into the wine festival itself this year. Don't feel like fighting through an ocean of frat boys to taste wine when I could visit the couple wineries I liked in town anyways. Rather hike and explore in town this time around. I couldn't remember if there were special tickets, if any we needed to buy to do the laps, but not go into the wine fest. Any insight on that?

A couple from Canada made the trip, and something popped up last minute and they had to go and miss out on the Wine Festival. They made their way out, and it occurred to a couple of us that they basically had a free morning jaunt.

That's all the insight I can offer!

We'll finish packing and get on the road in a couple hours. Excited for another year!

I had the backing of Smart USA Marketing the finest year, and then Smart Center Buffalo last year, but both Latham and Buffalo are booked this year - looks like I'm your only source of entertainment.

I'm happy to be heading year 3, and excited to see this year's group tomorrow morning. Safe travels everyone!

Skippy, I have some ideas for next year. I'll get with you early next year and maybe we can get a sponsor too.

Who else there was new? This was our first year, was our car the record breaker?
